Query: NC_017079:2243451 Caldilinea aerophila DSM 14535 = NBRC 104270, complete genome Lineage: Caldilinea aerophila; Caldilinea; Caldilineaceae; Caldilineales; Chloroflexi; Bacteria General Information: Caldilinea aerophila strain STL-6-O1T was isolated from a sulfur-turf sample in a pH neutral Japanese hot spring. It stains gram-negative and is facultatively aerobic: it grows both aerobically and anaerobically (fermentatively). Optimal growth occurs at 55 degrees C, pH 7.5 - 8.0. It requires yeast extract.

General Information: This organism is the causal agent of bacterial fruit blotch, which was first detected in Florida in 1989. The disease is spread by infested seed, infected transplants, or natural spread from wild hosts. Infected transplants represent the most important means of disease transmission because fruit blotch can spread throughout the transplant operation and can be asymptomatic on older plants, which can lead to high numbers of infected young plants early in the planting season.
